At St. Michael's we aim for all children to have 95% or above attendance. The leaflet below outlines our procedures for attendance and what to do if your child is too ill to attend school.
Term Time Absence
As a school, we do not encourage absences during term time however, we know there are many reasons why an absence may be requested. All requests received will be given due consideration and parents informed of the outcome of their request. Where a request is not made, the absence will automatically be unauthorised.
Please see the letters and form below for more details.
